    You should buy an audiobook builder program. I use one called Audiobook Builder. It'll combine the files together and give them the proper extension, which I believe is .m4b.

    Otherwise, you can convert them to .aac (this won't work with mp3) and then rename the file from chapter1.aac to chapter1.m4b. iTunes should then recognize it as a book, but each separate file will show up as a different book. The advantage of the audiobook builder programs is that it will bind it together so you only have one large book file.

    Hope that helps.

    AudioBook Apps

    There are 3 good audiobook converters in the Mac App Store or on MacUpdate

    AudioBook Builder (I've used this for several MP3 (multifile) to m4b chapter

    ChapterMark (I've used the demo and it seems fine, similar to the above)

    AudioBook Binder (this one is free)

    Have you tried selecting the files, right clicking them and changing their type from music to audibook? That has worked for me in the past
